Walter Wilsher, Jr. Obituary

Walter Wilsher, Jr., 96, of Pittsburgh, PA, born November 17, 1927 to Walter and Ann Wilsher passed peacefully on Tuesday, December 5, 2023. Walter was preceded in death by his wife of 74 years, Dolores, whom he married on October 25, 1947. He is survived in death by three of their four children, Walter, Renae (late Al), Thomas (Jan), and preceded in death by his youngest daughter Cindy (late Doug). Walter “Pap” was a constant in the lives of his five grandchildren, Monty, Jaime, Duane, Dawn, and Jesse and his seven great grandchildren, Bailey, Taylor and Allia, Brandon, Chase, Maya and Laney. He was a loving and kind man who enjoyed spending time with his family and his friends. He was the ultimate bestower of nicknames and to know him was to love him. The home he shared with his wife was a place where everyone was welcome.

Walter was preceded in death by his parents and by his brothers Billy, Philip, James, and his identical twin Wilfred; he is survived by his brother Wayne. Walter was a U.S. Army veteran having served in World War II where he was stationed in Japan. He loved sharing the stories of his life and his sense of humor and presence in our lives will be missed.
